Lakestone Jewelry by Jenny Nunnelee

Jewelry made with rocks from Lake Superior and sterling silver.

I am a Minneapolis based metalsmith who has been making jewelry professionally since 1999. I work primarily with sterling silver and rocks from the Great Lakes in my designs.

I love to take these basic natural elements and transform them into something even more beautiful. I enjoy the ritual of looking for the rocks. Sometimes I have a project in mind that I'm looking for specific rocks for and other times I design based on the rocks I find. I explore the interaction between nature and adornment in my work
